A sisterly talk during naptime
by Mr. Sheehy
Spoken across the hallway, under the doors, as Eldest“rests” in our room and Middle“sleeps” in the girls’ room.
Eldest: Middle, turn around.
Eldest: I’m in Daddy’s Red Sox shirt.
Eldest: And Mommy’s flower shirt.
Eldest: Okay, I’m going to go away now Middle. I’ll be back in a minute. I gotta put on this baseball shirt.
Middle: Bye Bye Eldest.
Middle: Time to come out yet Eldest? Time to come out yet? Eldest?!
10 minutes later
Hair sticks out beneath each door.
Eldest: Do you know why I was gone? I had to put on this shirt.
